Peter D’Ascoli has worked in both ceramics and medicine for over 40 years across the US. He is drawn to pottery because of the pleasure of touch. His ceramics includes thrown, hand built, functional and sculptural pieces. Peter’s work is meant to be approachable and available as well as carrying a message even if that message might be enigmatic at times.   Dr D’Ascoli’s current ceramic interest includes not only the ongoing coordination of utility and aesthetics but a growing interest in materials.

The Newest Addition: Belly Pots link to this group

Starting with a trip through the Whitney in NYC I was inspired by a piece seen there.  The technique of raw, and stained clay contracted with glaze is an area i have been interested in for some time, this seems the most successful.  The shapes morphed into round accentuated carve outs that leant a new and unique look which I have dubbed belly pots.

Vases, Bottles and Jars link to this group

These are a collection of items most of which could be used to hold flowers. They all can stand on their own without a floral addition as well.

Individually thrown and glazed; results will vary.

Bowls link to this group

How Dave could make such a life, When race was rife with strife? link to this group

This Homage to an unknown fellow potter was made as part of a show at Northern Clay Center.  While in NYC recently i went to an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art called “Hear Me Now”.  It is good to see that there is a larger interest in the potters before the Civil War who were enslaved most notably, Dave.

Platters link to this group

The smaller platters here are a further step into surface exploration for me. , One especially large platter soda fired is a nod to a mother who also had an interest in ceramic making.

A step away from the functional.  These are personal reflections and interpertations

Japanese inspired sets for Saki containing a tokkoi (pouring vessel) and a number of ochoko (cups)
